The UiTM Choir Group gave a mesmerizing performance at a choir festival in Poland.
Two choir groups from the Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) has brought back, not just one, but three awards from the “Per Musicam ad Astra” 7th International Copernicus Choir Festival & Competition in Poland!
Held from June 29th to July 3rd, the choir groups, UiTM Chamber Choir (UCC) and the UiTM Women’s Chorale (UCS) was sent to compete at the festival that had over 52 choir groups participating from all across the globe.
The UiTM choir groups made it to the finale and competed with choir groups from Poland, Latvia, Lithuania, Taiwan, the Philippines, Indonesia, and South Africa.
The winning performance that was combined with Malaysian cultural elements: from costumes to the traditional hand-sync motion (which was totally on-point), and not to mention, hitting every right notes on the dot definitely brought pride to Malaysia.
The choir group participated in three categories, namely the Mixed Choir and Folklore, the Women Choir, and had reigned Campion in all of the categories.
The winning title from the Malaysian choir group definitely wasn’t an easy feat. Having performed in many notable events, such as the Gala Dinner Asia Pacific Association for International Education 2019, Anugerah Akademik Negara Ke-12 where the choir group performed in front of Prime Minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, The 9th Malaysian Composers Concert Series 2018, and many more events, the team’s chemistry surely did not happen overnight!
